  1. I wonder if the snail cream is cruelty free. Like, how do they extract the snail juice?

    • There is no legal definition of “cruelty free.” Manufacturers are free to use the word however they want due to this lack of legal definition, according to the FDA. So, even when a product *is* labeled that way, it is not a guarantee.

      The slime (or “snail secretion filtrate”) in cosmetic products is the type produced when snails are subject to stress.

      • Ugh, that’s awful! Thank you for the info.

      • Oh no! I hope I don’t get it. I wondered what they did to get it. Terrible.

  2. I chose the Tarte Delish lip gloss. I hope the samples for Ipsy are better than what I am seeing from Birchbox. I didn’t like the March choices at all.

  3. Do you guys like the snail cream? Also, I got the Ouai hair cream and didn’t get a full use. I thought it was just me. Oh well!

  4. Okay ive had Ipsy for over 6 months, how is it that this is the first im hearing of this sample choice thing!?

    • They just started it this year.

  5. I picked the Tarte Rosy Mauve! I never tried it before and am excited! Also.. thank you Liz and Ipsy for making it easy to choose a sample. This is the first time, I choose a sample because I wasn’t sure how to do it. This made it simple!

    • thanks Ipsy team, I picked the blending brush!! I can’t wait!!!

      • I’ve just been emailing them and they have sent me my choice every time. Next up Lisa Frank cause Lisa Frank.

  6. I feel a little nervous about doing this with the instructions and bright pink banner saying it’s by invitation only… but what are they going to do, cancel my subscription?

  7. Good job ipsy!!

  8. Just awesome 👏🏽

  9. Yay thank you Liz 🙂 I chose the Tarte in rosy nude.

  10. Yes this was so easy! Glad MSA/Ispy worked together to make this an option and my vote is for it to continue.

  11. Maybe I’m being dumb here but if I already emailed a few weeks ago and chose a product, should I not do this because it will override it? Or is this an additional choice?

    • I’m wondering the same thing myself…

      • Yeah, I chose the wrong tarte color so I did it again.

  12. Yay hope this continues! I chose rosy mauve Tarte & the snail. Hope I get both! I wanted that snail from the points area but didn’t have enough & I always LOVE lip stuff! 🙂 @ least when it’s in a color I can wear!

    • I asked if I could get the snail cream and another item and she told me no. I’m curious what they tell you and I won’t say anything back to them. She gave me a choice of a Dr Brandt item but I can’t find it anywhere on the web. At first I had chosen the snail cream and she emailed me with the Dr Brandt Moisturizer. I see pores no more but nothing about him having a regular moisturizer. TIA if anyone knows what it might be. In the meantime I’ll hear back from her on Tuesday and I can’t wait!

  13. Well. This was pretty cool. Let’s see how this works. 🙂 Thanks!

  14. I emailed and asked for the snail cream weeks ago, Ive tried it and its awesome, and of course the container is adorable!

    • Do you know the size?

  15. Thanks for posting, Liz. I like the idea of picking out one item to try and being surprised about the other four.

    • Yes! Thank you so much for posting Liz!!!

  16. Yay! My first ipsy bag and there are great samples to choose from. This is a good sign 🙂

  17. The Tarteist color Vibin’ looks great, but I feel like I’ve gotten too many lipsticks in this shade range lately. I can’t tell if I’d like Rosé, but I know I hate mauves so I’ll avoid Delish. I’m curious about the snail cream too. Can’t decide! I’m selecting Vibin’, Rosé, and snail cream, and they can choose which one to send me, lol. Too indecisive.

    • It’s odd this is done through SurveyMonkey, which will require them to do some funky filtering and merging with their database. I hope they get this stuff figured out soon so that it’s not a headache for them to offer a sample choice each month.

  18. I love the survey option to pick, so easy! I selected the Neogen cleanser 🙂

    • when you selected your item did it take you to a survey website?

      • Yes. to survey monkey

  19. picked snail cream, so excited

  20. I like the survey option. I hope it works.

  21. Oh! I previously emailed Ipsy Care and requested the Elizabeth Mott brush, but now I want the Tarte! And the cleanser!

  22. I was tempted to sign back up to try the Pur concealer, but that’s not even one of the options here. I wish Ipsy would just let you pick your own samples lol, then you could get fantastic bag you love every month.

    • You can probably request it via email.

      • I tried yesterday – she said they were out of stock so I had to pick from the other choices.

  23. Is this a new way to pick your sample? In the pat I have emailed ipsy directly from my account.

    This was easier.

  24. WHAAAAAT! This is so exciting!

    I picked the Ouai mask.

    • I got that sample in my Sephora play last month and it was nearly empty. Hopefully you have better luck.

      • It barely covered the ends of my hair : (
        I was sad. It smelled so good!

      • I also got this sample from Sephora last month and I’ve used it twice, and there’s still some left. Although I don’t find it particularly does much, I think they’re all just filled to random amounts.

    • I got a one time use of the Ouai hair mask in my Sephora Play and loved it! i had a hair appt. a few days after using it and my hairdresser even commented that my hair looked better and healthier than usual. I’m seriously thinking of choosing it from ipsy but I’m really hoping their sample is bigger than the one use I got from Play!

  25. I couldn’t resist the 🐌 snail cream. I’ve read about it in Korean skincare method. Plus, how adorable is that container. Pretty excited about this one.

    • I’ve gotten the snail cream before – the container is ADORABLE! 🙂

    • How do you pick?
